Once every two years there is a household hazardous waste collection on Bainbridge Island (next up in 2022, probably in September), run by Kitsap County Solid Waste. Our Zero Waste website will announce when the event is due to occur.
If you can’t hold onto something that long, take it to the Kitsap County Household Hazardous (HHW) Collection Facility.
What is household hazardous waste? If the product label has one or more of the following words on it, chances are you should take your product to Kitsap’s HHW facility.
Empty containers belong in the garbage.
And congratulations to Kitsap County Solid Waste’s Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) team, which received a 2021 “Program Excellence” award from the North American Hazardous Materials Management Association!
